VOLUNTEER FAQs

What Kind of Volunteers Do You Need?

Food Rescue "Runners"

Picking up food from our donors and delivering it to our recipient partner organizations is an very important role. We need volunteer "runners" 7 days a week from 7 am until 7 pm. Adopt a regularly schedule run each week, or be on-call.

 

Comfortable driving? Great! We alway need drivers. Don't want to drive? No problem! Be a navigator partner and help load, unload and weigh food that comes in and goes out to those in need. FR runners using WPE vehicles usually start and end at our Pleasant Hill distribution center. 

Food Rescue Distribution Center Helpers

Love to cull through food and help sort and package it up for delivery to our recipient organizations? Every day we need helpers who are here when the food comes into our distribution center and after it leaves for deliveries across the county. Our distribution center is in Pleasant Hill. 

Food Rescue Recipient Location Helpers

Don't live near us in Pleasant Hill, but still want to volunteer in our Food Rescue program? There are fun and rewarding volunteer opportunities to meet our Food Rescue runners when they arrive at recipient organizations throughout the county. There are opportunities currently in East County and West County with our School Pantry program helping the school staff and parent volunteers distribute the food we bring several times per week. 

White Pony General Store (WPGS) Pop-Up Boutique Hosts

Have a knack for helping people shop? We always needs lots of Pop-Up Boutique "hosts" who help our guests choose clothing, toys and books for themselves and their families. These free events are wonderful experiences for all involved and it takes lots of hands and hearts to pull them together, there are many different volunteers roles before, during and after our events. 

General Store Clothing Distribution Workshop Helpers

There are opportunities every week to lovingly prepare new and like-new items for distribution to our recipients. Does sorting, sizing, tagging, arranging, and packing make you happy? How about mending, ironing and laundry? There's so much to do to prepare for our events and support our White Pony General Store program, reach out today and find out how you or your group can help.
